Mexican Students Opposing Soviet Policy Accused of ‘dual Loyalty’

Jewish students who demonstrated here recently against the repression of Soviet Jewry have been accused of “dual loyalty” by a group that calls itself the Mexican Students Front. Local Jewish circles believe the Front is a pro-Communist group influenced by Arab agents The accusation was contained in a statement issued over the names of Alvaro Flores Rico, president, and David O. Lozano, secretary of the Mexican Students Front. They alleged that “there is no anti-Semitism in Russia” and that “all the trouble is caused by conflict between Jews.” To back up their claim that the Kremlin has a benevolent policy towards Jews, the statement named the late Leon Trotsky and Lazar Kaganovitch as “Soviet rulers” and noted that Soviet Communist Party chief, Leonid Brezhnev, has a Jewish wife and “his children are Jewish.”
